My goal was to get it out by September 4th. Actually, my goal was to get it out by September 1st.
Unfortunately, a couple of other goals ran concurrently. I was revising a section of a manuscript to enter in a contest. I was writing a synopsis to go along with the revision. I was doing several other things as well. I can’t remember what.
It is now the wee hours of September 5th.
For most of the evening, something did not work: the computer, the Internet connection, the website. I don’t know which.
Just minutes ago, I sent an e-mail to the HoTXSinC officers explaining why the blog didn’t come out as promised. Then I accessed this blog and began a new post. So far, nothing has frozen. Nothing has grayed out. I haven’t had to log off or reboot. Things are going swimmingly.
I don’t know why. I do know that if I logged on to Hotshots!, the system would freeze. I also know it’s after 1:00 a.m.
I agreed to edit the newsletter a couple of months ago. One of the Sisters said she would help. She’s creative. The first time we discussed our collaboration, she rattled off a list of ideas. I took notes. I have a strong suspicion that she should be editing and I should be helping.
I have another strong suspicion that I should give this computer a good swift kick and go to bed. And that is what I shall do.
I’ll think about all this tomorrow.
After all, tomorrow is another day.*
*Technically, it’s already tomorrow, and consequently, the same day. But poetic license dictates that technicalities be ignored. It’s another day.
